We, at the Interactive Media Institute, realized early on that it was relatively difficult for professionals wanting to break into the Virtual Reality (VR) field to locate relevant information. While the material was out there, there was no clear organizational structure or database to link it. To solve this problem, we have put together Virtual Reality Resources, a relevant compilation for researchers and clinicians alike.

Virtual Reality Resources offers a clear overview of the advantages of using VR for Cognitive-Behavioral, Neuropsychological, and Physical Assessment and Intervention Applications. Further, it includes pertinent logistical information on such diverse topics as Basic Cost/Benefit questions, CRISP Grantees, necessary technology, and significant websites. Finally, the selected bibliography is an excellent guide for anyone looking for a deeper understanding of what scientific manuscripts have been published and what work still needs to be done.

We are confident that this collection will not only advance your personal knowledge, but through its clear organization and accessibility will aid in promoting the VR field as a whole.
